Silicon Valley Contemporary will host 40 galleries and nearly 250 artists from around the world during a long weekend in April at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center.

“Attendees can expect a cutting-edge art program featuring important works of moving image art alongside traditional works as well as an exciting and educational speaker program,” says Annie Levitt, of Silicon Valley Contemporary. ”We will be presenting a technology-focused fair by incorporating many different aspects of the tech world including Google Glass tours of the show floor.”

Interactive installation, the “Mutual Wave Machine” presented by Marina Abramovic Institute, will premier for the first time in the U.S. at the art fair with what is said to allow participants to visualize each other’s thoughts.

The Moving Image Experience section of the fair will feature stand-alone screens exhibiting video art and projectors displaying carefully curated moving image art.

A few of the galleries participating in the Moving Image Experience include The Christopher Grimes gallery of Santa Monica, the Marianne Boesky Gallery of New York and the Carroll/Fletcher Gallery of London.

Levitt said another reason organizers chose San Jose to host their event is because they believe it is an untapped market for art galleries from around the world to showcase their pieces.

There will be several key events across the four-day span, including an opening night preview to benefit the San Jose Museum of Art on Thursday, April 10.

The Art Fair takes place April 10-13 from 11am-9pm every day except Sunday, when it will close at 6pm. Three day passes for the art show can be purchased for $40, and single day passes cost $25.
